2020 - Assembly Bill 2028 (Aguiar-Curry, Cecilia), State Agency Meetings (Dead)
Would have amended the Bagley-Keene Open Meeting Act of 1967 (Bagley-Keene) to require State bodies to provide all writings and materials in connection with a noticed meeting with the currently required 10-day notice. Additional associated writings and materials to be considered at the meeting and provided in advance of the meeting to members of the State body would have been required to be posted on the State body’s website by no later than the first business day following the dissemination to State body members or at least 48 hours in advance of the meeting, whichever is earlier. Other associated writings and materials provided by another State body, or related to legislation and changing market conditions, and disseminated to State body members after the 48-hour period would have been required to be posted to the State body’s website by the first business day after dissemination, but prior to the State body’s meeting. If a written request is made for such additional documents, then they would have been required to be provided immediately to the requestor. Assembly Bill 2028 would also have required the State body to allow public testimony on any listed agenda item. The bill would have exempted documents that are discussed in closed sessions. Was ordered to the Senate inactive file by unanimous consent.
